The recipes in this Indian cookbook guarantee consistently delicious (and easy) dinners in your own kitchen—from a perfect Samosa with Mint Chutney and a melt-in-the-mouth Chicken Tikka Masala, to Pork Vindaloo, Tandoori Chicken and Sweet Mango Yogurt Lassi.

Some of the more than 100 authentic Indian recipes include:
  • Cucumber and Yogurt Raita

  • Street-Style Grilled Corn on the Cob
  • Fish Tikka

  • And many more…
Having lived in the West for many years, Chef Hari understands time for meal preparation is limited.

With Hari's guidance and time-saving tips, the ability to create your favorite Indian meals at home can, finally, be achieved.
